Magic: Legends, the upcoming MMO game set in the multiverse of Magic: The Gathering, has revealed the first look at its gameplay, and it looks pretty familiar. First announced at the 2019 The Game Awards, Perfect World Entertainment and Cryptic Studios have revealed a cinematic trailer and several promotional images for the game but they didn't reveal what the actualy gameplay would look like until now.
Game Informer has first revealed the gameplay trailer, and you can watch it above.
The trailer features work-in-progress gameplay footage, and in it, we see a couple of Planeswalkers take quests, traverse various environments, and battle several enemies with incredibly powerful spells.
It's easy to compare what we've seen in the trailer to Blizzard Entertainment's Diablo III. It was recently revealed that the MMO will feature card-based gameplay and deck design as part of its features, but the gameplay trailer didn't really reveal much of the battle mechanics.
The description of Magic: Legends confirmed that players will take the role of a Planeswalker, and it will be set across different iconic worlds in the lore of Magic: The Gathering, so expect to see popular planes like Ravnica, Zendikar, Dominaria, and Theros among others to be featured in the game.
The details revealed last month also confirm that players will be able to collect spell fragments, and that they can traverse with up to two other Planeswalkers in the game.
